PANABO CITY – Davao del Norte State College (DNSC), through its Learning and Information Resource Center (LIRC) and the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAdS), partnered with the Department of Education (DepEd) Panabo City Division for the implementation of Skill Up Teaching Strategies: Training on Designing, Adapting, and Implementing Teaching Strategies for Learners with Disabilities, Giftedness, and Talents project.

The second stop of the project was the Southern Davao National High School to emphasize the importance of a specialized library for indigenous education. SDNHS Principal Marivene Espinosa welcomed the team, “We feel lucky that we will be given additional resources or books through this program to enrich our curriculum further. Having a library with textbooks on indigenous education is crucial for fostering cultural understanding and promoting diversity in education.”

The program included an Educational Film Viewing session, followed by the Book Drive and Library Organization activities in the afternoon.

Before finally closing the event, College Librarian Paulina T. Baba assured SDNHS that the team would be back again in time for the celebration of the National Book Week in November.

This initiative is a testament to DNSC’s dedication to fostering cross-cultural understanding and creating a more inclusive educational landscape for all.
